Can you believe it– a 3rd post in one week?? I think this part time work is agreeing with my blog! The other day I was on Pinterest and got fixated on bar stools, and in the process I found so many fun style that I thought it’d be fun to share my finds here. Some of them are a little on the spendy end of life, but there are several budget options including one that (believe it or not) you can make yourself.
This first one is probably completely impractical– I don’t even know where you’d find truck springs that big–but I love, love, love the beefy look and the style!
These next two are from Pottery Barn and at $200-$300 each they are a lot more than I’d like to spend. I also don’t like to imagine the havoc a toddler could make on these seats with a peanut butter sandwich. Yikes. But oh, so pretty.
Here’s that DIY stool project— I think it is super fun, and if you buy the parts at ZORO.com, the total cost per stool is somewhere around $60. I love the fun steampunk look, though I would probably stain the wood top a darker color, and use a metal floor flange for the feet instead of the knob end. You could even bolt them to the floor that way if you wanted to.
This next stool is from World Market and gets tons of rave reviews on the website– always a good sign. I like the nice broad base– looks sturdy enough even for energetic children. It looks like it would be fairly adjustable height-wise too. At $119 each, these stools are mid-range cost-wise, but after spending 10 minutes reading the reviews, I felt ready to buy anyway. People love these things.
The stools below are from Overstock.com. They’re $89.99 for a pair. Look at all the colors they come in! I love the idea of popping some bright green ones into an otherwise neutral kitchen.
These barstools are available on amazon. At $63 a pair they’re super affordable and also highly reviewed. (Amazon reviews are sooo helpful!) I like the textured seats and the fact that many reviewers mentioned that they were comfortable and stable for little children.
